Joan Rivers Update: What Her Latest Test Results Reveal & How Daughter Melissa Is Taking The News

Joan Rivers has been moved from intensive care, but is she showing any signs of improvement?

According to a family source, there may be a strong reason to keep our hopes up.

One of the big worries after the Fashion Police star stopped breathing was that even if she was woken up, she could have permanent brain damage.

But the source says that at least the worst possibility has been ruled out by the latest tests. The source says:

"Preliminary tests appear to rule out brain dead. There seems to be some function."

Thanks goodness for that! We don't know if we could bear to lose that wit.

So how is Melissa Rivers doing through all this? Apparently she's keeping positive too. The source says:

"There is only one outlook Melissa is looking at now — She's like, 'When my mother wakes up…,' 'When my mother sees this and that …' There is only one trajectory she sees this going in the direction of, which is positive. She refuses to acknowledge any other outcome than Joan coming out of this."

Honestly that's the only outcome we can imagine right now too. We mean, it's Joan Rivers! She HAS to be OK.

    Recently on Tavis Smiley's show Joan said she has a "Do not resuscitate" order to be invoked if she can no longer do stand up comedy for 90 minutes at a time. She joked that her attorney tried to negotiate her down to 60 minutes. The point is she would want to be allowed to die if she had no quality of life.

    Re: Daniel – What Karma will you have for arrogantly judging that someone somehow deserves something bad that randomly happens to them? What if something bad happened to you and people speculated about all your misdeeds that supposedly caused it?

    Those of us who have been through this kind of thing before know and understand what the family is going through, and we also know it's never an easy decision to take someone off life support. Not in any case. Those who don't know what this is like and have never been through anything like this before should remain silent.

    Cut that shriveled hag off life support and let her be done.
    She's been spewing so much hate and ugliness around, karma got her at last.

    I loved Joan Rivers. She was a brilliant business woman. Loved her comedy…it came naturally to her. I will miss seeing her on QVC…she had wonderful taste. What a shame, I am hoping she did not suffer.

    Re: SogayPoof
    This is by far and without a doubt, the most thoughtless, foul, and cruel comment I think I've ever read. The woman isn't even buried yet for Christ's sake! Nothing quite like kicking a grieving family while they're down eh?

    You should be ASHAMED of yourself!
